Limited Capacity full

In this session, participants will discover the benefits to using an asset-based approach to teaching and learning. Participants will learn to intentionally dismantle bias while maintaining a positive working relationship with others. This approach includes a three step strategy to intentionally shift conversation, planning, or problem solving from a deficit-focused tone towards a culturally responsive and strength based style. Participants will walk away with strategies and resources to do effective work around equity in school and youth development spaces.
